They will stand there and watch you die! I worked for the local Fire Dept. for twenty-five years and saw this exact sort of behavior hundreds, if not thousands of times. Generally, the police do not care for you. Of course there are exceptions, but they are very rare. They are not hero’s, the hero’s are in the water. They are the enforcers of the will of the powers that be. They are not your friend, they are out to hurt you legally or physically, either will do.
“The cop showed up and chatted on his phone while the other men saved the lady. Please give the cop some credit, folks. He did have a gun at least, in case any pet dogs were nearby.”
